Defending when organised or matched up

Start with 2v2 unopposed to begin with then move to 3v3 working on defensive postions

Blue players play ball out to red players and the blues then become the defenders. Switch roles to allow everyone to have a chance to defend.

Coaching factors:

Defenders work together when defending

Player closest to the ball presses and team mate covers in behind

Lots of communication between defenders

When moving to 3v3, nearest player to the ball pressess, next defender covers and then the third player cuts off the danger
